But the idea of something like "Nintendo 3" sounds a bit weird to me. Maybe I would get used to it, but I think they went in the right direction with how they name their systems. But it can be hit or miss.
It probably wouldn't have been "Nintendo 3" though. I mean, it's the Playstation 3, not the Sony 3
Would NES3 sound so bad though? Although to be honest if they were going to use a numerical naming system I think the Gamecube would have been the best place to start that. I mean, who wouldn't want a Gamecube 2, 3, 4 etc.?
